Making sure you have the best possible retention regime brings long term benefits for the patient and your practice, so it’s important not to forget this vital aspect of Invisalign treatment. This short webinar will clarify your thinking on which type of retainer and which retention protocol to choose. It also covers the consent process for retention. (15 minutes)

Why is this training important?

There are many conflicting opinions on the best type of retainer and the most appropriate retention protocol. The real answer is to choose the option that best suits your individual patient. Problems with retention can take the gloss off the fantastic results you will have achieved with Invisalign and will inevitably reduce the number of recommendations you will receive from previous patients. This webinar aims to improve your chances of retaining that great result.

What is it?

The 15 minute webinar reviews the current evidence on retention appliances and protocols. It breaks down the techniques available, providing a clear list of pros and cons for each, to help you decide which the best choice is for your patient. It also describes a useful technique for providing fixed retainers for those who find wire bending a challenge! Finally, it provides some guidance on how to ensure you have clear communication (and therefore good consent) on the patient’s responsibilities for retaining their orthodontic treatment.

Who is it suitable for?

This webinar is designed primarily for the Dentist. However, DNs and TCOs may find it helpful to increase their background knowledge of this aspect of Orthodontics. Completion of the associated workbook will provide the equivalent of 1 hour of verifiable CPD, with a Certificate of Competence available on successful completion of a MCQ.
